Based on the cartoon that inspired the popular television series. This frightfully fun musical comedy about the original creepy, kooky, spooky Addams Family is hilarious and tuneful, requiring actors with good pipes and excellent comic abilities.       RATED PG

 

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

GOMEZ ADDAMS (Male, 40-60) Wealthy and dashing ladies’ man, although he only has eyes for his wife, Morticia. Loves his family and is in quite a quandary when he has to keep secrets from his wife to prove his love for his daughter. Spanish accent. Smart, comedic actor. Should be able to dance. Tenor

MORTICIA ADDAMS (Female, 35-60)   Gomez’s beautiful and sexy wife. She adores Gomez and her children but is a force to be reckoned with when crossed. Black is her favorite color. Dry sense of humor. Strong dancer. Alto/mezzo soprano.

WEDNESDAY ADDAMS (Female, 16-25) A little psychotic. In love with Lucas, a ‘normal’ young man, who can actually make her smile. Carries a crossbow and is a dead shot. Enjoys torturing her little brother. Strong pop belt.

LUCAS BIENEKE (Male, 18-30)   Attractive and earnest. In love with Wednesday and wants to marry her. Desperately wants his family to make a good impression on the Addams family. Contemporary pop tenor.

PUGSLEY ADDAMS (Male, 8-14) Charming and funny. Treasures the times his sister makes him scream. Doesn’t want to lose his sister and plots to derail her impending engagement. Strong, high vocals. Voice not yet changed.

UNCLE FESTER (Male, 30+) Gomez’s unmarried younger brother. The musical narrator of the show. Possesses a childlike joy. Strong comic chops. Tenor.

GRANDMA ADDAMS (Female, 45+) Feisty 102-year-old. Fun and quirky but scary when crossed. Alto belt.

LURCH (Male, 18-50) Very tall and sinister. The Addams’ butler. Moves very slowly and speaks in moans and groans. Bass.

MAL BEINEKE (Male, 40-60) Lucas’ stuffy father. Always irritated with his wife. Long ago lost touch with his inner Grateful Dead fan. High Baritone/Tenor.

ALICE BEINEKE (Female, 35-60) Lucas’ sweet, quirky mom who has set aside her own desires for her family. Often speaks in rhyme. Good comedic actress. Soprano with a strong belt.

ENSEMBLE (All ages) Mostly portraying the Addams Family ancestors, the ensemble members of this show have lots of vocal and dance fun in store!
